no idea

I've been reviewing the videos all morning and tried everything in those videos and can't get it

let inputValue = document.getElementById('linkName');
inputValue = linkName.value;
const a = document.querySelector('a.textContent')
<!DOCTYPE html>
        <title>DOM Manipulation</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
        <div id="content">
            <label>Link Name:</label>
            <input type="text" id="linkName" class = textContent>
            <a id="link" href="https://teamtreehouse.com"></a>
        <script src="app.js"></script>

You can't select properties (like "textContent") directly with a method like "querySelector". But you can select the element and then refer to the property using dot notation.
